Upstairs from the Tricycle Café, and across from the Long Gallery, Nolan Art used to be part of a whaling warehouse. These days it’s an art gallery with a difference, showcasing contemporary Tasmanian art alongside boutique art tuition.

Whether you’re a local or a visitor, you can find something to suit you here. A conversation about art, a lovely drawing to take home or an exhibition opening once a month. Our artists include photographers, printers, painters, jewellers and sculptors.

We arrange private tuition as well as rather painty art parties. During the holidays we hold art workshops for children and full day sessions for adults in everything from abstraction to introductory oil painting.

Nolan Art is a practical place where you can commission a painting or have your partner pose for your friends for her birthday party.
To book a class, a workshop or purchase Tasmanian art, you can browse through our online shop or drop in to visit us.

Nolan Art offers a variety of enjoyable, enriching art experiences to complement the stay of conference and business visitors to Tasmania.
These can be provided:

  • Centrally in our loft classroom in the historic Salamanca Art Centre.
  • As part of the program at the conference venue.
  • Around Hobart’s waterfront or at selected sites in southern Tasmania

The School has provided quality art experiences and tuition to visitors and residents in southern Tasmania since 1999.
